Family friendly travelling in Niagara Falls

With the spectacle of three thundering waterfalls providing an endless display of nature's awesome power, Niagara Falls is ready-made to wow the kids. The Falls are the main attraction here, whether it's a spray-filled cruise tantalizingly close to the falls, a magical view from the caves behind them, or a breathtaking vista from a viewing platform. There are also theme parks, museums, gardens and hiking trails nearby—plenty to keep every member of the family entertained.

Things to see in Niagara Falls

The Falls themselves are naturally the stars here. And perhaps the most exciting way to experience them is on a boat cruise through the mists to the very base of the roaring waters. While waterproof macs are provided, be prepared to get wet. For a different perspective, take the Journey Behind the Falls tour, which snakes through dripping caves to platforms behind the Falls—you can almost feel the weight of the waters rush past you. Again, expect to get a little wet. For a less damp view onto the spectacle, ascend the Skylon Tower. From its 775-foot perch you can absorb the majesty of the Horseshoe Falls, and then perhaps enjoy a bite to eat in its revolving restaurant. But once you've had your fill of the Falls, take the kids to the Fallsview Indoor Waterpark. Here they'll enjoy their very own watery adventures. The Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens provides a more relaxed atmosphere, wandering among amazing plants and flitting butterflies.

Where to stay in Niagara Falls

Undoubtedly the family-friendly hotels in Niagara Falls with the best views are to be found along the Fallsview Road.

Affordable Niagara Fall hotel rates can be found close to the Rainbow Bridge. These still command great views back onto the falls. Some of the most affordable kid-friendly hotels in Niagara Falls are a little further from the river, along Victoria Avenue.
